    Hmmm...isn't that a self-evident tautology?

    Well mostly but for adopted ones as well.

    While the study does not refute previous findings that DNA impacts intelligence, it does prove that environmental influences play a significant role in cognitive ability as measured in early adulthood.

    Reading dead brains.

    Scientists crack piece of neural code for learning, memory.

    Combined with my previous DM post and you just might have viable cryonics soon.

    That would seem to imply that if you replicated the neuron that remembered Dolly Parton, you would become obsessed with her.

    By reading dead or frozen brains and installing memories in fresh brains, that could bring interstellar travel to you in your 'lifetimes'.

    When you feel the time is right, go to an assisted suicide bureau, where you can be frozen as well, to join with other frozen trappers who are like minded (frozen brained) and within a few centuries your brains and DNA can be put on an interstellar craft and in the centuries off travel to your destination your brain can be scanned and copied.

    Twenty years away from destination your DNA would be cloned with your copied memories and personality, a sort of 'beam me up Scotty' taking a few hundred years, with a healthy young body and new knowledge at arrival.

    Where you would worship Captain Trim with the help of a few drugs and enhanced memories.

    One of the main reasons I object to the Multiple Worlds hypothesis is that some worlds might resemble Trim's imagination.

    I have some news for you. If there be no limit to the number of those worlds, then the scenario you describe occurs with 100% certainty.

    The next question is: which one is this one?

    The good part is that the chance +this world+ is exactly TrimWorld is 0%. The bad news is that there is a 100% chance that TrimWorld exists. Worse, there may be a range around TrimWorld.

    Even worse than Trimworld must Shirley be the Angusworld.

    I believe this is CedricWorld. You don't know Cedric - but he knows you.
